The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - NEWS -

PISCATAWAY >> Rut­gers Uni­ver­sity of­fi­cials are con­demn­ing an anti-Mus­lim poster found hang­ing out­side a cul­tural cen­ter on the New Jersey school’s cam­pus in Piscataway.

The poster con­tained the words “Imag­ine a Mus­lim-Free Amer­ica” and a sil­hou­ette im­age of the World Trade Cen­ter’s twin tow­ers. It was dis­cov­ered Mon­day night and re­ported to cam­pus po­lice, who turned it over to the county prose­cu­tor.

The school, whose main cam­pus is in New Brunswick, is­sued a state­ment con­demn­ing the poster, say­ing its con­tent “vi­o­lates the val­ues and ideals for which Rut­gers stands.”

Uni­ver­sity of­fi­cials say cam­pus po­lice will in­crease se­cu­rity and pa­trols at the Paul Robe­son Cul­tural Cen­ter. The cen­ter serves as a hub of Mus­lim and other mi­nor­ity stu­dent gath­er­ings and as a prayer space on cam­pus.
